On the night of Dec. 10, 2003, Bart told his family he was graduating soon, and they went out for a celebratory dinner, seen here. Little did they know that the dinner was just the first stage in a plan to have the family murdered. Less than 30 minutes after this picture was taken, Kevin Whitaker, left, and Tricia Whitaker, center, were dead — gunned down by an accomplice hired by Bart Whitaker, right, to kill his family.
